“Great walk to get there - shame about the facilities.”

We walked to the beach from our guest house along the cliff path which was amazing but we were a bit disappointed with the beach when we go there. Lots of people but very limited facilities.

This beach is fantastic on so many levels!
Its a big beach - meaning you dont have to it on some strangers towel during the peak season.
Its in one of the most beautiful settings.
Mountains in the background and the ocean at your feet.

Whats also nice is that the water is much warmer so you can enjoy a swim.

Very clean too!

And there is a river that flows into the sea (seems like all year round) which makes it a very different beach.

This beach is well worth a visit although the day we went the sand was stinging our legs as the wind was so strong. What looked to be a very nice cafe right next to the beach too.

Lovely White sand stretching for miles, and very good for families. Barbeque facilities available, and good Restaurant nearby

It has a far stretched beach which is great for running and walking with dogs. The facilities are also good just to have some family fun on the beach.
